I don't know about the rest of you, but i have kind of become less attached to them. Maybe it's because every time i try to have a random conversation with someone about pokemon, the first thing they say is "ZOMG WHOSE UR FAVE STARTER? MINE'S CHARIZARD!" Then they proceeded to level their starter up to level 100 and like no other pokemon.
It's also kind of a weird feeling, but starters kind of make my character seem like a spoiled brat. All the other trainers are rocking it out with pidgeys and common stuff, and I'm like that rich kid on the playground that says "check out my mudkipz, it's better than YOUR pokemon!"
